Ahh now you're talking! Scorpion 7.5m is just up your street. Sleek, well built, very very seaworthy and in short the dogs danglies
I bought a second hand one this year after having done a fair amount of cruising in Scorpions and deciding that there was nothing better for the money!
New ones are out of your budget (circa £35k I think) but you should be able to get a decent secondhand one with a Optimax/Ficht/HPDI engine for that money. (Mine is a 96 model with a 2000 engine & in excellent nick.)
I don't think the tubes are significantly tapered but she has a very pleasing hull shape and looks the bizzo to me. Pics of mine are in the gallery:http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1077
